From Dead to Worse, the eighth Sookie Stackhouse book by Charlaine Harris, is funny, sexy, sassy, and full of surprises. This series is one of my favorites because Harris creates such a plausible alternate reality. Her main character, Sookie, can't seem to keep a man ? undead or otherwise ? and the supernatural side of her life keeps getting more and more complicated. In From Dead to Worse, Sookie, as usual, just wants to lead a normal life, but the weres and the vampires, as well as her fairy grandfather, have other ideas. Sookie is a delightful character, full of charm and vulnerability, yet able to take on some pretty tough bad guys. Harris's believable cast of supernatural characters keeps the reading coming back for more of her exciting world.
